I hit a pb today with a chest infection

Dead lifting earlier on I struggled my arse off. I managed 1 rep at a weight I done 2 triples with last time. I just didn't have it in me.
I did do events yesterday so was a bit drained I guess and missed training most of last week as I was working away.
What's the f**king crack? Pissed off and went home with my tail between my legs.
Should I have just left training tonight? (Obvious I guess).
Or would a simple energy boost drink thing have got me sorted?

Sorry for the daft thread just annoyed like f**k

It's my experience that if I have done any work involving my erectors at all the day before I Deadlift I'm absolutely terrible in my Deadlift workout.

I assume events training would have this same impact on me.

Yeh I always warm up well, stretch/foam roll & 3/4 minutes on cross trainer every time.
I foam roll throughout my workout most of the time, especially deads as my back plays up

Hamstring/Glutes/Erector Spinae are much higher in Type IIA (FOG) and Type IIX (FG) than the rest of the body as a generalization.

FOG/FG use creatine phosphate and glycogen (sugars) to function, which are easily depleted, as opposed to Type I (SO) that uses triglycerides (fats), and are harder to drain.

Sounds like low carbs to me, especially post training. Smash the s**t out of nesquik milkshakes post training mate, maybe sup some creatine and see if this sorts it out, I'm sure it will help....

That's very interesting AMH, I am enjoying your posts allround. I usually do find if I am dehydrated/low on carbs that some muscles do just not want to work.

This sounds like a good reason mate thankyou. I get about 50g of carbs post training at the moment and then my tea a couple of hours later.
Any old carbs?
Thanks

Eek

Some form of deload may be in order though?
Better than injury...

Such as what mate? I'd been progressing well for the last few weeks before I worked away last week. Seems to have threw me off track and messed everything up, gutted really as I feel f**ked.
I did work 12 hour days every day last week and other chaps at work are still knackered too so maybe a lots down to that
